Education Reform and Limits to Student Achievement.
Orlich, Donald C.
Phi Delta Kappan, v81 n6 p468-72 Feb 2000
Current reform efforts are politically inspired, fragmented, unsystematic, atheoretical, and costly. They ignore developmental limitations to student achievement. This article uses Piaget's cognitive notion of development and behaviorist principals of instructional design to support the existence of qualitative and quantitative limits to student achievement.
